Dark Green Fritillary (f)

Dark Green Fritillary (f)
This butterfly was tentatively identified on the basis of environment (coastal) and the pale spots inside the marginal band. Others have since confirmed this conclusion (thanks Derek and David). A view of the underwing would have been nice, but it wasn't to be. Photographed on the cliffs near the village of Rhiw on the Llyn peninsula.

Well detailed photo.
Yes, Butterfly's have a habit of parking wrongly, either with open, closed or half open wings.

I would agree with Derek. The only other one it could be is a High Brown Fritillary, but that is very unlikely. which either it is, it is certainly a female and a lovely photographic capture. You are lucky, I have not seen one for many years. I know that it is female because of the number and size of the spots on the fore wings, also on the fore wing is a figure of eight, which suggests the Dark Green.

Many thanks Derek. Never noticed the figure of 8, but now you point it out it's obvious.
